      Pros

      Interesting projects. Good compensation, including stock options even on middle levels. Clear and effective performance reviews (but see the cons). Smart and friendly people.

      Cons

      All developers participate in 24x7 production support (via shifts). Performance reviews take enormous time and efforts from team leaders. Hiring interviews favor coding skills over everything else.

      Pros

      - A lot of skilled professionals, helps you up your professional skills and grow - Interesting projects, something to apply your ML/algorithmic knowledge. - The company really seems to care about you. Shows in stuff like children presents, benefits package for your family, bike parking spots etc - Compensation package is more then adequate for good performers.

      Cons

      - Internal services infrastructure: it is awful at times, no documentation, and people are forced to use it

      Pros

      One of the best place to work in Russia. Keep in mind that since Yandex is a pretty big company working conditions in different divisions may vary greatly 1) Interesting projects 2) On high levels very competitive salary 3) Skilled colleagues

      Cons

      Keep in mind that since Yandex is a pretty big company working conditions in different divisions may vary greatly 1) On low levels salary is not so good 2) Work-life balance is awful sometimes 3) I think that while company is great with technologies, it really lacks good marketing and product management
